Did some transfers from the plate in pic one. Added my future substrate for the first time in this batch - coir, small amount of BRF, egg shells, and kelp meal. Still on LME for the main nutrition, but the myc is loving this batch! Not sure if it is just stronger transfers, or the additives, but the rate of growth is really good. I am loving the red stain, it is easier to view from the bottom of the plate. I did notice that the plates that I poured with more agar had much less condensation, not sure if this is a known phenomenon but I like it. I think I'm going to try out a different recipe next time around without the additives. Just saw the incredibly long list of recipes from earlier in the thread. Decisions, decisions... I think I'm getting closer to a pseudo monoculture.
Very exciting stuff
EDIT: also these little cups actually can be pressure cooked, but the lids can't :(
